With a variety of items available on their menu and the option of “You Bake-We Bake”, Figaro’s is optimistic about their plans for growth.1 Now in its 25th year, Figaro’s Pizza began in 1981 in Oregon as the dream of two entrepreneurs who wanted to meet the needs of busy families in the area who required speed, quality and convenience. Today, the company continues its unique selling proposition centered on their food and providing exceptional value, using only the freshest of ingredients. Figaro’s insistence on using only 100% REAL Mozzarella cheese, fresh vegetables and meats with no fillers or MSG, along with making fresh dough daily, has reinforced their trusted brand over time.
